Mid Autumn Wish ..

Hi there!

It's nice to see you again here on my blog post.
Today I want to reveal my freehand painting using Kuretake Gansai Tambi - Japanese traditional water coloring, I jumped over when my friend - Vera, introduced me to this water color and I love love them at the end ..
Since I love to paint for simple scene when I was young, my mind suddenly thought about the beautiful Mid Autumn .. and I just remember the words;

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
(forgive me I am forget the author of these words)


I am focusing on the lovely Tripping Flower Tilda .. as she is really so beautiful on the Japanese costume! and I wanna tell you that the Mid Autumn for us as Asian mean more than a little .. we have a traditional gathering with family and eat the "Moon Cake" together. We put our WISH for the better weather ahead!
oh yes .. let me ask you to wider the focus, I paint an Autumn scene in Japan for the background, and as I mentioned before I do it with free hand style. I am not a professional painter but I think not have to be perfect on this hobby :)
So, I hope you could still enjoy my painting

Below, I will post some of picture for more detail ..




Those picture show how I enjoy every steps when I color the image, the background and wrapped it out on a design to be a "Mid Autumn Wish"card .. through this card I wish everyone would have a cozy Autumn and enjoy the beautiful of the turning leaves!

Thank you so much to stopping by and read my blog post today .. will see you again soon!

Love, Yulis

would love to entering this on : Midweek Magnolias - Autumn

Gypsy Tilda and Water coloring Background

Hello my lovely readers ..
Today I have a card with a story for share, wish it will bring you some inspiration :)
Once upon a time 
on the starry starry night ..
There was a pretty lady sitting on the wall at the back yard, she brings a crystal ball ..
mmm .. what would she doing ?
She is so fancy with a Gypsy costume :)
and because she wants to give the wisdom wording she copied a quote ..

Do your little bit good where you are,
It's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm
the World!
Gypsy Tilda is from Magnolia latest collection : Pink Lemonade 2014
I color Tilda with some kind of mediums; 
for her skin, hair band and her slippers I use Distress Ink, while for her dress and the wall she sat I color them with Graphitint
I put some glossy accent on her crystal ball to make a dimensional look.
For the words I stamp a sentiment stamp from StampinÚp! with versamark on a vellum and apply Ranger Platinum liquid embossing powder.
Those Bark Butterflies are from Prima marketing.
I have a chance to take a photo when I play with water coloring to make a starry starry night background,
First I apply a masking liquid on my image, I use Winsor and Newton but you sure can use any brand you may found on the store close to you :) I place my image on a mini cutting board with painter tape and start doing the water coloring.
I use Kuretake Gansai Tambi for my background as they are can go well both opaque and transparent and I would say that they are my favorite from now on.
Here the closer look, and I am happy to have them :)
when you can get the 36 colors, they have pearl, silver and gold color also and they were so awesome!
I think that's all from me today, thank you very much for stopping on my blog and I wish to see you again .. bye!!
Love,
Yulis

Love is a big Rose

Hi.. 
It's been so long since I've added my last post, not so easy to get a free time on the real life lately but however today I get a slot to write some words and sharing a card here ..


I have some short trip last weeks and I had stole a time when in hotel room to color some images .. sound so fun but yup! it is.
I thought the simple stuff that can go with me easily are my pencils! so, I just color with my sephia pencil color set from CREATECOLOR 
Here the material list come along when I use my colored image for making a card:
Papers - Magnolia
Dies - DooHickeys View Master, DooHickeys Club Vol. 1
Nesting - Spelbinder, Go Create
Flowers - Prima
Hopefully you will like my card
Thank you for stopping by and Have a good time!!!
Love,
Yulis

Follow your heart

Dear my fellows ..
I found a very nice word that made me back here to share an inspiration for you .. 
"Follow your Heart"

yes, really .. I found that whenever I follow my heart when I so something, it was made me happy and sooo relax :)
Here my card to you to enjoy today
and this is also for inspiration at MDUC (Shabby theme) and IMLC ( Thank you so much for invited me as a guest on Red and White theme ) you might be check it out on the both sites :)
 
 all that I create here just follow my heart :)
I am so in love with the "Home Sweet Home" from Magnolia stamps - Pink lemonade 2014 and finally  use my "Tilda with Spring Heart" - Lost and found 2014.
I just love her pose holding a big heart, seem that she really won't to lose it, but I never get a chance to color her until I saw that big bird house and I think I have to masked these two stamps together.
 
 again, I said that I just follow my heart .. so the wording stamp from Stempelglade was very perfect! and I want to bold "HEART"on my card, so first I embossed a scrap paper with embossing powder - Aged taupe from stampendous and sprinkled African gold from Ranger on top of it (this glitter was awesome!! and love their shine so much) I cut the embossed paper with alphabet dies and cut creative foam with the same dies, by glued them together I have my own DIY Thickers :)
 
  Papers I used all are Magnolia, somewhere on my card painted randomly with embossing paste and I put some stardust glittering over there, just "some" ...
if you mentioned some white glowing on it was from Sakura white pen and I also use "My Metal metallic"pen to give fairy dusk on the roses.... 
 That is for now and if you any words you might write for me they would be my treasure ;)
Thank you so much for visiting me today and I'll see you again soon!
 Cheers!!

Hello Sunshine!

Hello dear my fellows over there!
Its me today want to see you all .. and so good to be back here :)
before I will continue with something to share today, I just want to say that I thank you guys for always support me in many ways! How I blessed to have you all :)
ok, back to the post ..
as the weather soon become dry and hot, the Sun Shine was inspired at making card or projects, but I choose a card that I want to sent for my son's friend who wants to celebrate her birthday with seashore theme, how fun!

 
Nothing too fancy with the design but this time I would love to take a try to play something different with background, this idea borrowed from a photography tech called bokeh, after I did trials and errors I try to search some inspiration and I found a brilliant idea from Dawn , she gives me lots of inspirations and for mine I use Liquid masking from Winsor and Newton to temporary closed my image when water coloring the background.
and also .. please forgive me about my coloring :) I did any mistakes here and there :)
I know, I haven't success enough for the bokeh background but I want to try again for sure because it was so fun to do!! meanwhile I still love the out come and hopefully you will like that also and get inspired too!!
 

 Ok, peeps .. that's all from me to day and wish you all a great day!!
Lots of love,
Yulis

Vintage roses .. keep the Summer sweet memories

Hi!!!

Long time no see ? he he he ..
Ok, I am sooo .. happy to say hi again to all of you guys!
how about you ?...  feeling happy and still don't wanna go from the lazy summer ? 
Time flies so fast and of course we have to moving on :)
but sure we all always had the sweet memories for every summer aren't we ? ..
and today I would love to frame that flowery summer memories on a tag .. and it was special for the Ribbon Girl Challenge as sweet Mary has invited me to be a GDT.


I use the cutest, Tilda with her Rose lace dress and she is from the latest collection Pink Lemonade 2014. Colored her with distress ink and doodling some petite flowers and grass with water color.
after a long time I don't pick any paper flowers for my card, today I have some roses to fit in with everything sweet on here :)


 This is the most fabulous vintage fabric I've got from Ribbon Girl , called Vintage printed pink rose hessian ribbon , trust me if you see them in meters it was so fabulous! and I also put some roses that Ribbon Girl has stocked on their shop. I tied that fabric with hemp twine , also from Ribbon Girl


I have no idea how to take a picture to show you how glittery Tilda's dress ... aaargh...
I use the Wink of Stella on her dress and ribbon hat, gosh it was so beautiful shimmery IRL but can't show on here .. 

Ok, that's all for me today and will see you again, soon!

Thank you for stopping by and Have a lovely day!!!

Love,
